Quality reviews

The quality review process is a risk-based approach and addresses regulatory requirements and adopts a formative approach to support the training placement providers to meet their obligation to provide a high level of education and training for their learners.  For any intervention undertaken, clear reasoning is required to justify the use of a particular method of intervention and the following principles are considered:

  • Is the method effective and efficient?
  • Is it proportionate?
  • Does it ensure a high quality, learning environment?
  • Does it ensure patient safety?
  • Does it add value?
  • Does it have the learner as its focus?

There are five methods of review: -

  • Urgent Concern Review
  • Risk-based Review
  • Multi-professional Review
  • Programme or Thematic Review
  • Monitoring the Learning Environment

The methods are supported by six practice approaches: -

  • Learner/Educator meeting (on-site) visit
  • Learner meeting (focus group)
  • Educator meeting (Education Lead Conversation)
  • Work programme meeting
  • Intelligence gathering meeting
  • Senior leader conversation
